LP, Vinyl record album

(€9.91 || £8.82 || ¥1329) (approx.)

Funky and soulful spiritual work from Michael White, and a better set of grooves than you'll find on most of his other records. The set's got a good electric vibe, with a production style that differs from most other Impulse recordings, and which sounds more like it belongs on a Roy Ayers recording from the time. White's violin is fairly restrained, and used more for rhythm than for out soloing. Cuts include "Father Music, Mother Dance", "Commin' From", and "Water Children. Nice stuff, and one that you might overlook if you're not careful. (Cover has some seam splitting.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

On A Clear Day
Impulse, 1966. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the best Shirley Scott albums ever – a wonderfully groovy little set that seems to stand head and shoulders above some of her other trio dates of the 60s! Shirley really hits a nice clean groove here – a sense of tone we don't always hear this beautifully on earlier Prestige ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
Pharoah Sanders is working here with some excellent horn players in the frontline – Woody Shaw on trumpet and Gary Bartz on alto sax – both of whom really bring a lot of power to the record! As with some of Sanders' other Impulse albums of the period, the record only features two long ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazz 'Round The World
Impulse, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold
Yusef Lateef explores a number of different world music rhythms on a mix of woodwind instruments that includes tenor, basoon, flute, oboe, and shanas. He's joined here by the great Richard Williams on trumpet, whose playing with Lateef is always excellent. The rest of the group's made up of some ... LP, Vinyl record album
World Galaxy
Impulse, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
One of Alice Coltrane's most ambitious albums of the early years – recorded with a full set of heavenly orchestrations! The core group features Alice on piano, organ, and harp – alongside Frank Lowe on saxes, Reggie Workman on bass, Leroy Jenkins on violin, and Ben Riley on drums. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold
A surprisingly enchanting album of piano work from Charles Mingus – one of a few he cut on the instrument, and quite different than his regular work on bass! Unlike the bold, angry role that Mingus would take on as a leader, the approach here is very personal and introspective – long ... LP, Vinyl record album
Everybody Loves A Lover
Impulse, 1964. Good+ Gatefold
A simple formula, but one of Shirley's best records from the mid 60s, and a tight batch of quartet tracks that also features Stanley Turrentine on tenor. The title cut's a classic jazz stepper in Chicago, with a subtly loping groove that works pretty darn well. Other tracks include "Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1965. Good+ Gatefold
A tremendous little album from Sonny Rollins – one of his most sharp-edged sessions of the mid 60s, and a bold departure from some of his previous work for RCA! The album has a crackling sense of energy that more than lives up to the exclamation point in the title – a starker quality ... LP, Vinyl record album
Americans In Europe Volume 1
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
If you read these pages often enough, you'll know that we're big fans of recordings made by American expatriot players while living in Europe during the 60's. The European rhythm sections often bring out new elements of their playing, and the interaction with European soloists hits modes that we ... LP, Vinyl record album
Coincide
Impulse, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
A beautiful and spiritual record by Dewey – and one that features very stripped down playing, mostly in a trio or quartet format. The players differ from track to track – and they include Sirone on bass, Eddie Moore on drums, Leroy Jenkins on violin, and Ted Daniel on trumpet. Two ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse Years
Impulse, 1960s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Most of the tracks on this 2 LP set are not from Jones' solo records but rather songs under the direction of others, mainly John Coltrane but also Frank Foster and Sonny Rollins. Some of the Coltrane titles are the drum solo from "Pursuance", "Impressions", "Your Lady" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crystals
Impulse, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Sam Rivers' most striking albums for Impulse, a record that has him leading a fairly large group – working in an "orchestral context", as the notes on the cover say, but not really a jazz orchestra – more of a freewheeling avant ensemble, in the tradition of work by ...

For Members Only
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
Groovin' set of tracks that has the lady organist in two settings – one with her trio with Jimmy Cobb on drums, the other with a hard swingin' big band led by Oliver Nelson. She's great with Nelson's band, and swings in the same hard way that Jimmy Smith does in the same setting. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
